Unsettled Ground Wins Costa Novel Award

I’m so delighted and amazed that Unsettled Ground has won the Costa Novel Award 2021. It means a huge amount that Jeanie’s and Julius’s story will be more widely read, and it’s simply a wonderful privilege for the book to be chosen from so many entered and of course the brilliant shortlist. More information about the awards can be found here.

Unsettled Ground will now go forward for the Costa Book of the year where it will be judged against the other category winners: biography, first novel, children’s, and poetry. The overall winner will be announced on 1st February.

They are £3.00 each (including a glass of wine) and are available either by emailing winchester@waterstones.com or by dropping into the High Street shop. More info here. I hope to see you there.
